by ArtemisGallery LIVE

February 16, 2016, 8:00 AM PST

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,800

Description: West Africa, Nigeria, Yoruba peoples, ca. early 20th century CE. A female Ere Ibeji figure, hand carved to represent the female member of a pair deceased twins, adorned with incised markings representing scarification and other bodily details.

Size: figure itself measures 9.25" H (23.5 cm); 10.75" (27.3 cm) on stand.For context, an Ibeji is an orisha, a holy spirit in the Yoruba religion.

When a twin passes away, this is believed to bring on bad luck for the parents, families and connected communities.

Yoruba Ajere Ifa Divination Bowl, Ketu Region, Republic of Benin or Nigeria.  Agere Ifa is a container for storing sacred palm nuts for Yoruba divination.   Given its ritual and aesthetic functions, it provides the Yoruba carver with a unique opportunity to display his artistic talents.  Usually carved from wood and measuring between five and sixteen inches in height, a typical container is in the form of an animal or human figure bearing a small bowl. In some cases, the metaphysical attribute of a given animal motif may be used to further empower the sacred palm nuts inside the bowl. But when the motif assumes a human form, it frequently has a votive significance, especially since some are given by clients to a diviner to thank a deity for a blessing or to implore the deity to bestow more favors on the donor.  Provenance: Private collection collected between 1910 and 1930.   SIZE: see attached ruler photo.  Photos are part of the description representing the condition report and can be used for authentication prior to the sale date.  Pangaea Auctions urges Bidder's to view all attached photos in detail.  #(African, 18th-19th Century, Fine Art- Sculpture, Bowl, Wood, Antique, Vintage, 17th-18th Century, ).

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,800

Ancient African Nok Terracotta Head - Ex Malter

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

February 16, 2016, 8:00 AM PST

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $500

Description: West Africa, Central Nigeria, ca 500 BCE to 200 CE. A carved terracotta head created by this ancient African culture. This terracotta example is made of a coarse, quartz-tempered clay. The features were hand-modeled and show a remarkable sophistication for such an early date in Iron Age, Sub-Saharan Africa. The style of Nok facial features shows similarity to more historic and contemporary bronze and wooden sculptures found among the Benin and Yoruba peoples of Nigeria. It has been said these ancient figures represent the beginnings of black African art. Mounted on wooden base. Size: 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" x 2-3/4" (11.4 x 8.3 x 7 cm); 6-7/8" (17.5 cm) high on base.Classical Nok terracotta was first found in 1943 deep within a tin mine, near the present-day town of Nok, situated on the Jos Plateau in central Nigeria. The exact use of these portrait-like figures has yet to be discovered; none of these sculptures has ever been found in situ and any remains of ancient structures are practically non-existent today. However, it has been suggested the terracotta figures, which this head came from, were ancestral effigies kept in shrine houses. Provenance: Ex-private Bates Collection, Clarksville, IA, ex-Joel Malter Collection, acquired before 1990 All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids. We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience. #110709

Condition Report: A fragment with expected surface losses and abrasions. Still, a nice representative example.
